Christian Common Good Page
you examine Christianity with reason: anybody that fails to
notice the many positive, wonderful things that Christians
do within their communities and around the world must be
blind or prejudiced!!! Helping the poor, needy and
underprivileged is not only reasonable, it speaks well of
their character and compassion!!! Quote me on this!!!
Note: Christianity isn't the only religion involved in the common good, just the one that Ex-Minister is more familiar with at this time. Ex-Minister is willing to list other faiths although I'm not that impressed with the Islamic common good due to the fact of their disdain for democracy and human rights. I don't look kindly to the imposition or inquiry towards Sharia law into any democracy! Christianity and Judaism allow inquiry and skepticism without retaliation.

The desire is to populate this page with worthy causes. Please note the distinction should be between a purely evangelistic ministry (which I am not interested in promoting) but rather to focus upon Christian groups that work towards the common good. The big question is: "Does the group emphasize meeting a need in the community or getting people into faith? This question goes a long way in determining if your group is a good fit here. If you know of a Christian group that should be considered for this page please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . .
This is unchartered territory and a pioneer concept that will develop over time. Beyond listing, plans are to discuss/interview leaders that are (or seeking) to accomplish something good in the world. Nobody expects them to distance themselves from faith (they shouldn't) just as no one should interpret this as a secular approval of a lifestyle built on faith! In all, the emphasis is upon the common good despite our differences upon theism matters.
Smaller (lesser known) works/subjects need some secular verification to get listed (hint: someone to vouch for them!) Banners and logos are desired but not necessary!
Ultimately, I want to break down silly barriers that theists/non-theists erect to thwart the common good. Nobody is asking another to compromise what they believe in, we just want to find a way to get humanitarian work done!
